Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Eunapius was a Greek sophist and historian of the 4th century. His principle surviving work is the Lives of the Sophists, a collection of the biographies of twenty-three philosophers and sophists. He was born at Sardis, AD 347. In his native city he studied under his relative, the sophist Chrysanthius, and while still a youth went to Athens, where he became a favourite pupil of Prohaeresius the rhetorician. He possessed considerable knowledge of medicine. In his later years he seems to have lived at Athens, teaching rhetoric. Initiated into the Eleusinian Mysteries, he was admitted into the college of the Eumolpidae and became hierophant. There is evidence that he was still living in the reign of the younger Theodosius.
